What does Apple build into that cute little charger that comes with your iPhone? There’s a lot more to it than most of us would have thought. It’s actually pretty crazy what goes into it.
Ken Shirriff posted a teardown on his blog. It shows us what’s inside the charger and goes into detail about what everything is. Apparently, it goes beyond what most smartphone chargers do. There is plenty of information on the blog that explains just how the charger works, and while it’s not horribly complex information, it does go a in-depth about the components and what they do.
It’s worth checking out the full entry to read up on it, if you’re interested in all that electrical kind of stuff.
